“Brilliant place to stay”
Reviewed 1 November 2013

Stayed for two nights in a two bedroom family room. There was four adults in our party and had plenty of room. It was very clean and all the staff were very friendly and helpful. Ideally located for your stay at the beach. Would highly recommend the motel and surrounding area for a perfect stay.

We stayed in 201, which has two bedrooms. Both beds are full size, which may be small for some. Also, you have to pass through the first bedroom to get to the second. And the AC is only in the first bedroom, so you have to keep the door open between the two. Cleaning service is excellent, as is the view from the main bedroom. Furniture is nice and well maintained, but the supplies (kitchen) are sparse. The location cant be beat, except if you need to go to the supermarket. Then you need to take the trolley or your car.

You see a beautiful view from your porch. Which is a good thing because if you want to access your internet, you need to sit out there and get one bar if you are lucky. We never had Internet in room. This is a major flaw as far as we are concerned. It's very easy for owners to buy extenders instead of having all the guests sit outside their room on their iPads and lap tops! And even then, it's hit or miss.

The room does not have shampoo or coffee maker or hangers for the closet. It's bare bones

The hotel itself is next to a loud tacky touristy restaurant

St petes is fun to visit once but it super tiny and not much to do. Very laid back. We used it as base to go to shows in st Petersburg and kayaking north of tampa. We did find two very nice restaurants that were not over priced fried food. The tapas place around the corner and the veggie place!

My husband and I have stayed at the Keystone Motel 3 times now and have had a great time. You have a great resturant next door and across the street. There is a nice breakfast spot in walking distance that had good food. A little high for breakfast though. If we go to Florida again, we will stay at the Keystone. It is so quiet there and if you want noise you just have to drive up the street a ways

I live in north central Florida and have been coming down to the Keystone Motel in Pass-A-Grille for about 12 years. Lovely area, friendly family run business, clean rooms and sparkling pool. Everything within walking distance. Always a nice time!

I normally stay at the major chain hotels when I travel, but I ventured out to this gem during a stay for a Triathlon & I'm glad I did. I read a few reviews and I picked it based on those reviews. Much like the other reviews the location was prime. We arrived as spring break was ending in April, so we didn't see the crowds. Having no breakfast service was fine because we got it next door at Hurricane's. I will advise to be careful at breakfast at the Hurricane next door because when you look at the hotel's 2nd level there is a small window into the shower of one of the rooms. During our breakfast sitting at the Hurricane, one guy made sure everyone 'down below' knew he was 'showering'. Nothing to be concerned about & I chalk that up to the guest, not the hotel.

Walking across the street to the beach and having eating/great drinking near by made this place primo!!

**ASK for a parking pass from Hotel personnel** I think the city parking attendants get paid on commission!

Pool area has that 'Melrose Place' feel to it but without all the drama!

What more could you ask for...located right across the street from the gulf and beautiful sandy beaches, right next door to a decent restaurant and a great pool. Watching the sunsets on the beach are awesome! I have come here since I was young, but I have to say that this time I was disappointed. While they have made several improvements; new paint on the outside, and remodeled several bathrooms, our beds were hard and our pillows like bricks. Our place had an air conditioner aimed right at the bed; it had to cool bedroom and the living area. In order to do that you had to keep the bedroom pretty frigid, which made sleeping difficult. Furniture was in good condition, but wasn't comfortable. While the woman who worked the front desk was very friendly and helpful, the man wasn't nearly as friendly. I will still go here, for location and the memories, but won't stay on third floor!

Room Tip: Apartments are usually more comfortable.
